newark who has been a rising star in the political sphere for quite some time now cory booker has intimated he is looking to run for the senate race when senator frank lautenberg's term is up in 2013. i suppose it's not that big of a surprise, although some thought he might try to challenge chris christie in the gubernatorial race. >> yeah, there was some speculation that would be a powerful race there, but i think chris christie right now is pretty popular in new jersey, especially in the aftermath of his behavior following the superstorm sandy. i think cory booker has a huge future, and i think if he runs for that frank lautenberg seat from new jersey as the democratic nominee, he'll have a pretty good chance of winning. i don't know who the republican might be. that's not going to happen until 2014. so we still have some time. the gubernatorial race is next year. >> he has some big money behind him already and has had some for quite some time already. this is a guy who maybe, you know, if americans are starting to hear more about him because of his super hero, you know, busines

delays. today is no different. washington, d.c. an hour plus delay for you. newark there all morning. fort lauderdale has trouble at the airport but that is not wind related. san francisco, the rain an inundation with rain today for you, as well. big picture today, the wind and rain and, of course, the snow off the great lakes in the northeast. the rain and mountain snow in the sierra we'll be tallying it up to feet of snow. some incredible ski conditions, but the balance of the country today is dry and a little bit colder than where we should be this time of year. a white christmas, look at the swathe of it. meet logically a white christmas is when there's an inch of snow on ground christmas morning. it doesn't have to be knowing at that time. so much of the countries will see that. but the forecast for christmas here in the northeast, not out of the question for boston and new york to see snow flurries. in the northeast predominantly it will be dry and cool. atlanta rain for you on christmas. nashville, as well. so cloudy and a little bit of rainy in the southeast. in the upper mid

delays. new york and laguardia, ground stop. philadelphia, newark, two and a half hour delays and the predominance and problem here, the winds. philadelphia gusting to 30 miles per hour. new york, 33 miles per hour gusts. so that's really part of the problem because the big cities aren't seeing snow accumulation. they're seeing heavy rain with the wind. here's a snapshot. in central park, gusting to 31 miles an hour. all the way from cleveland to indy, 20 to 30-mile-an-hour gusts and new york gets in the potential 50, 55-mile-an-hour gusts tonight. exacerbating are those winds. so here's the big picture. the good news though, we've seen things clear out. in illinois, indiana, even into ohio. you see those kind of holes in the radar, the dark white showing where the heaviest snow is. but see those dry pockets now? all that is lifting out. still wet here along the 95 cory -- corridor but all the snow we certainly saw a lot. so in southeastern illinois, 18 inches. bloomfield, indiana, 11. evansville, 10, indy, 7.2. paducah, kentucky, 4.6. so certainly, a lot of strong storms with
, especially in the northeast. laguardia and newark and post have been two of the big areas, delays 1 to 3 hours. long delays tonight continue in the northeast, a lot of that wind-related. most of the rain has left, even as far northeast as boston. winds gusting 30 to 40 miles per hour. san francisco, it's been a tough go for you. if you're watching from the airports we've had 3 to 4-hour delays. rain, low visibility, fog. that will continue in san francisco. the hardest-hit areas, tomorrow and sunday. for the northeast for tomorrow, windy and much cooler. temperatures precipitously drop, 50 in boston, we drop into the 30s but it will feel colder. quiet in the northeast and midwest for sunday, the biggest stormy spot will be on sunday, will be the west coast and along the west coast. so here's a look at the weekend travel picture. here's the storm exiting the country, exiting the northeast. tomorrow, clearer skies but cooler conditions. the winds hold on tomorrow. temperatures dropping into the 30s and 40s. you're looking for snow. western great lakes, it's actually lake-effect snow. that
're traveling to newark or philadelphia, those airports there are also experiencing weather delays anywhere between two hours to three hours. no word yet if it has any effect on sfo flights. if you are heading home for the holidays from the bay area and other parts of country you might want to be prepared to wait because in addition to traveling during the busy season it looks like you're traveling against mother nature and thanks to that winter storm in chicago, aviation officials say more than 350 flights out of o'hare and 450 out of midway were canceled. we are seeing the effects here at home. sfo reps say it's delayed a few flights in the bay area. that's not the only thing that will set back travelers today here. rain is moving into our region so unfortunately, the national weather service says this could make things messy for travelers. but the early bird flyers we spoke to say they are prepared. >> when i go to check in i'm two hours ahead with tickets ready. so if they tell me there's a delay i'll be able to catch another airport. i have three stops on the way home. so i'll hope tim
whether he would get the o challenge from the very popular mayor of newark, at least popular in some circles cory booker. >> what's interesting about this is that cory booker put out a web video which is how all the a politicians announce these days. he said i'm interested in obnning for senate. that job isn't actually open at this point. senator frank lautenberg holds that seat, a long-time democrat. he has not telegraphed what he's going to do. when cory booker put out this statement that he was going to run lautenberg said there's a time for politics.au it's next year. that's when i'll address it. lautenberg is 80 years old. he's in his 80s. he might decide to run.h he could be... decide to keep that challenge afloat there. we could either be talking about a democratic primary or booker is very well known. he's got a strong national presence.el so this is somebody who could clear the field for the democrats but either way it will be competitive. republicans always say that they think he's within their sights.. chris christie proved to republicans that a republican can win there. t
and 180, jfk, laguardia and newark as of this hour. in terms of the delays we are not seeing them mount as much as we would have thought at this time and one of the reasons that snow not quite working its way into the tri-state area just yet, but we are, nonetheless, seeing low ceilings and visibility issues and certainly wet runways as a result of the storm which will continue to crank along throughout the afternoon and the evening before winding down overnight into tomorrow and really impacting cities like boston which could pick up a foot. i would expect to see major delays for you. here in new york, we are anticipating those delays to continue to climb throughout the evening. one of the good things with this storm, versus the storm earlier this week is the winds are lighter with this so it won't be as much of an aviation problem. nonetheless, if you are traveling you will want to check ahead because we are anticipating anywhere from one to three inches of snow hitting the new york metro area by this evening. >> i remember when i was little and snow was fun. >> reporter: yeah. not wh
not reporting many delays and there's a 15-minute delay in newark and not a huge problem. san francisco reported a bigger delay today due to rain. as we look at video from other parts of the country, from st. louis and from kansas city, there's not much of a problem there. there are some long lines and for the most part travelers have gotten to where they needed to go. there are other problems, however, in the northeast and places like upstate new york, virginia and pennsylvania. snow has snarled traffic there and there is some concern that on the west coast, as well, there could be issues. for the most part, traffic is doing much better today than it did in the past two days, thursday and friday. more than 1600 cancellations throughout the country and so far today only about 75 according to flight aware.com. again, here in atlanta, it could be a whole lot worse, richard. >> they have more runways and 405 will be more difficult. gabe gutierrez at the atlanta hartsfield international airport. we'll check back in with you, thanks. >>> egyptians are going back to the polls on the constitution. the
